Just in case you've been missing them, Hsiao-Ching Chou, the fabulous Seattle Post-Intelligencer's food editor has been podcasting since April.
For her inaugural podcast (Masters of the Craft, April 13, 2005) Ms. Chou visited with Thomas Keller and Jeffrey Cerciello of Bouchon, Per Se & French Laundry fame and with Maximilian Riedel, of the Riedel wine glass company.
These conversations on food, eating, restaurants and interviews with food writers, farmers, restaurant critics and restauranteurs have been not only very interesting and fun but they take reading the food section to a whole new level.
Not to mention Chou is the only podcaster at the PI and the PI's On Food the only newspaper Podcast in Seattle. At least for now.
Remember, you do not have to download them to your iPod to listen in. You can play the MP3s right in your browser. Just click on the links, sit back and enjoy!

My favorite so far: Hsiao-Ching Chou's Ruth Reichl at Salumi --for reasons both obvious (I love Ruth and Salumi) and others I'll dish on as soon as I return from LA. ;-D
